Exercise with Andy: Living Room Workout 8

Reading Time: 2 minutes
The next Whole Life Challenge starts in:

Each week, I’ll share a workout from my personal exercise routine — and then do it in real time so you can follow along. These workouts are optional and are simply one of the many ways you can accomplish your ten daily minutes of exercise.

Living Room Workout 8

To be honest, I’ve been avoiding this workout for a while — it’s very simple, but it’s hard. In order to get myself motivated, I told myself I had to do this workout before a meeting I had scheduled, which left me exactly twenty minutes to get it done. This added pressure and deadline often actually helps me take action.

So what workout would make me procrastinate?

For time:

  1. 100 burpees
  2. 100 squats

The cut-off time is 12 minutes — once you hit 12 minutes, stop no matter how many burpees and squats you’ve completed. If you’re a beginner, do 50 of each movement, or 25 of each movement. Watch the video for more ideas on scaling the workout, how to modify the exercises, and to join me in the “fun.”
